Graduating college with a degree in Gender Studies, Noell spent her 20’s working as an advocate and activist in the movement to end human trafficking and domestic violence. Struggling to find the balance between working with survivors of gender specific trauma, and nurturing healthy relationships in her personal life, practicing yoga became her safe haven.
Beyond the intimate breath and body connection, yoga connected her to a community of like-hearted friends and helped her to find simplicity in a chaotic world.
Inspired by the transformation that yoga offers to all people – men and women alike, Noell moved to California in 2010 with the intention of teaching yoga full time, and continuing her education. She has since studied and completed programs in alignment based yoga, trauma informed yoga, anatomy and biomechanics and Ashtanga yoga. Noell has been a full time yoga teacher and teacher trainer since 2012.
Noell is an E-RYT 500 with the Yoga Alliance. She is the Yoga Coach for the San Francisco 49ers, and is the co-facilitator of the Joy of Yoga 200 Hour Teacher Training at Breathe Together Yoga in Los Gatos. Noell teaches public, private and corporate yoga classes throughout the Bay Area.
